Rarely-seen objects and documents will be on display as part of an exciting new series called ‘Meet the Collections’ at the Sir Francis Cook Gallery.

You'll have a chance to see, and hear the stories behind, a range of items usually kept behind closed doors in storage. All the items on display have been carefully chosen by the Collections team, who look after over 750,000 objects, textiles, archaeological finds and archive documents, including paintings, maps, volumes, parchments and electronic files – all representing different aspects of Jersey’s rich history.

These items are usually stored in purpose-built repositories at Jersey Archive and at the Augres Store behind Sir Francis Cooke Gallery. As part of the new ‘Meet the Collections’ series, the Collections team will be encouraging the public to ‘Adopt an Object’ to help fund vital conservation work.

These events are free and no pre-booking is required.
